Don Henley – All She Wants To Do Is Dance lyrics

They're pickin' up the prisoners
And puttin em in a pen
And all she wants to do is dance, dance
Rebels been rebels
Since I don't know when
And all she wants to do is dance
Molotov cocktail the local drink
And all she wants to do is dance, dance
They mix em up right
In the kitchen sink
And all she wants to do is dance
Crazy people walkin round with blood in their eyes
And all she wants to do is dance, dance, dance
Wild-eyed pistols wavers who ain't afraid to die
And all she wants to do is dance
And make romance
She can't feel the heat
Comin off the street
She wants to party
She wants to get down
All she wants to do is
All she wants to do is dance
Well the government bugged the men's room
In the local disco lounge
And all she wants to do is dance, dance
To keep the boys from sellin
All the weapons they could scrounge
And all she wants to do is dance
But that don't keep the boys from makin a buck or two
And all she wants to do is dance, dance
The still can sell the army
All the drugs that they can do
And all she wants to do is
All she wants to do is dance
And make romance
Well we barely make the airport
For the test plane out
As we taxied down the runway
I could hear the people shout
The said, "don't come back here Yankee"
But if I ever do
I'll bring more money
Cause all she wants to do is dance
And make romance
Never mind the heat
Comin off the street
She wants to party
She wants to get down
All she wants to do is
All she wants to do is dance
And make romance
All she wants to do is dance

    I think this song is talking about the youth of the day. The youth can't find anything meaningful. All around them everything is crazy. There is nothing they can do. So what is the meaning of life? Happiness. All they want to do is "dance and make romance" and they don't care about "the heat coming off the street" as Don Henly puts it. Everything is meaningless for them. They do not have a world view except for having as much fun as possible. So why should they care about the shocking things taking place around them? And the author does not give us a solution.

    I think this song is talking about the youth today. They see many things that are shocking to the listener. The government bugging people and crazy people walking around; they don't care. They don't see any good so they have to come up with something good and fun. And guess what they came up with? Partying. That was all they could do. Dancing. Partying. Romance. There is nothing else left to do. The author doesn't make any suggestion as how to take care of this mess.
